EDIT: I'm guys really sorry if I mixed you up, check my first post for an explanation.
USB and SATA are well defined and accepted standards that are used in the PC industry. There is no equivalent standard for the memory compatibility of a system's memory controller. Memory compatibility became much more of an issue with DDR3 memory than it did with DDR2.

The memory controllers on Intel processors that use DDR3 memory have requirements that are very specific about the way the memory chips are designed and configured on the DIMM. These memory specs are for Intel 4th Generation Desktop processors like an i5-4690K:

Somewhat complicated, and how many memory manufactures have specs like these available on their websites? Very few.

Not every DDR3 memory model that works with Haswell CPUs and boards will be included in the memory support list, but not every DDR3 memory model that exists will work with Haswell CPUs and boards. So a randomly picked model of DDR3 memory will work by luck if it works with the CPU and board.

Usually it is safe to choose memory that the memory manufactures states is compatible with Haswell CPUs and boards, if it is not on the board's memory support list.
